堺で生まれた千利休と与謝野晶子に焦点をあてた、親しみやすい所です。 最初にビデオ(12分)を見て堺の歴史、茶の湯の歴史、利休の生涯を学びます。 利休と武将達の関わりは堺出身の片岡愛之助のナレーションで楽しみましょう。 前もって予約が取れれば山崎の待庵を模したさかい待庵の中へも案内してもらえます。 明るい立礼席もあり、お点前を拝見しながら一服のお茶を楽しむ事もできます。 阪堺線の宿院駅からすぐの立地条件も抜群だと思います。 This is a newly- built facility related to Sen-no Rikyu, tea master and Akiko Yosano, poet, both born in Sakaicity. First we can see the 12-min movie to learn Sakai, life of tea master Sen- no Rikyu and tea...More
